      Summary: Friends of the Urban Forest performs two community tree plantings

      for coordinating the individuals who are receiving trees and the volunteers
      who are helping to plant trees at these events each month.

      This primarily consists of receiving inbound calls and emails from
      individuals who are newly interested in participating and making outgoing
      calls and emails to individuals who have previously expressed an interest
      in participating.

      The main metric for evaluating the Volunteer Coordinator is the percentage
      of interested individuals who actually participate.

      structure

      � Respond to individuals and groups requesting for volunteer opportunities.

      � Point person for corporate volunteer events

      � Schedule corporate groups and schools to volunteer with appropriate staff
      person (i.e. plantings, tree care, sidewalk landscaping, or tree nursery
      work days)

      Retaining:

      � Oversee regular communication with volunteers

      � Update volunteer lists to keep database current with active volunteers.

      � Oversee two volunteer recognition events with assistance from staff per
      year

      Hours: 20 hours per week including some evening and weekend meetings. Hours
      subject to change at management discretion.

      Compensation: $18,000 to $20,000 per year, depending on experience. 50% of
      full-time employee benefits.
